Add Cozy Artwork
Nothing says “stark” better than a blank wall. Add some personality to your space with artwork. Strategically group artwork around your furniture to create cozy areas in each room. Consider adding a gallery wall, and don’t be afraid to change up your artwork seasonally.
Layer the Lighting
Layered lighting adds warmth to a space. Be sure each furniture arrangement has overhead and task lighting. For example: reading lamps in a bedroom or pendant lighting over a kitchen island add extra depth and warmth to a space (as well as function!). And don’t forget to select warm ambiance light bulbs for task lighting!
Add Functional Storage
The opposite of stark walls is cluttered piles. While your space should look lived in, minimize clutter with bins, baskets or even built in storage.
Add Your Personality
Here’s the real secret to creating a cozy home. Ready? It’s all about adding YOUR personality to the space. Anybody can buy cozy elements for a space. And it’s straightforward to install a light or add a basket to a room. But making a space FEEL welcoming is more than curating a collection of things. The best type of cozy home is making it a place to rest and belong.
